Boasting rare unobstructed water and wetlands views, this custom John Cannon Homes is a canal-front residence situated in a guard-gated boating community with the option of a golf membership. The Islands is located just 3 miles from Lakewood Ranch which gives the community the conveniences of Lakewood Ranch while enjoying the boating life that is not an option in Lakewood Ranch. This gorgeous 2017-built home has a rare view to the water and wetlands not looking into another home on the other side of the water. You will enjoy refined country living and the ultimate coastal Florida lifestyle on this nearly half-acre property, including a trex boat dock & boat lift with electric/water, direct access to the Manatee River (no lift system/lock system) which leads you directly to the intracoastal, Gulf of Mexico & beyond, while also offering an optional social or golf membership in the private golf & country club of River Wilderness. Relax and soak in tranquil waterfront views on the expansive clearview-screened lanai, which offers a pool/spa, outdoor kitchen, and built-in fire pit. Dine alfresco beneath the spacious covered patio which flows into a sitting area to entertain guests. Inside, the custom split-bedroom floorplan includes three bedrooms, three baths, a dedicated den/office (currently serving as a 4th bedroom), encompassing nearly 3,000 square feet, with high ceilings, neutral tile flooring and a contemporary design. Chefs will stay connected to conversations while preparing delectable meals in the open, well-equipped kitchen, which features gas appliances, an oversized island with seating & storage, quartz counters, wine refrigerator, and a breakfast nook that has sliding glass doors for the indoor/outdoor dining experience. The beautiful great room features a wall of disappearing glass doors, tray ceiling with recessed lighting, attractive built-in shelving with lighting and a cozy fireplace. Other highlights of this fabulous home include hurricane-impact windows and doors, a generator, and Jet Ski docking - all located in a custom-home neighborhood where you wont see the same house over and over. No CDD fee. HOA fee includes a 24-hour guard, access to the Dutch West Indies styled River Lodge, where residents and their guests can gather for happy hour to eat/drink, play games, or watch collegiate rowing teams training on the river. In addition to a community day dock and launch, the facility includes an inviting great room with a grand fireplace, a bar area, large-screen televisions, card tables, and a catering kitchen. A state-of-the-art fitness center is available, along with an oversized patio with comfortable seating, outdoor fire pit, bocce ball court, putting green and barbecue.
